Many clubs have a gender bias - the women's changing rooms are frequently smaller than the men's. Often four or six of us in there at the same time is too much. And then there's the icy blast and being on full view when the door opens...

yep.... race, gender, class... about time a frankenboat thread got onto religion.  

Well I guess if your sailing club is going to get associated with feminist hashtags, then "thisgirlcan" is a shed-load better than "metoo"

haha - triple trolled if you want to.... but as the thread moved to a semi-serious state, I was being a bit selective of advertisement analysis.  Looking at the haircuts, I bet half of them were privately educated... and no facial tattoos or piercings either, dead give away.

maybe we should see if Stormzy could open the dinghy exhibition?  Although he's quite a religious chap and probably doesn't agree with skipping church to float around ponds in bathtubs.

I guess I see one as a real issue, whereas the other as an observable participation bias.  

AHA! I have just Trolled the Troller. Although I 'WAS' hoping for a more spirited response ;-)
